Ponte della Vittoria (Victory Bridge)

Ponte della Vittoria is an infrastructural work created to celebrate the Battle of Vittorio Veneto that took place on 4 November 1918. The bridge connects the two banks of the Adige River and was also built to strengthen the connections between the city and the area known as 'Campagnola', i.e. it had to connect the Old Town to the Borgo Trento district.  



The Architect Ettore Fagiuoli and the engineer Ferruccio Cipriani were chosen for the project. The project, entitled 'Nec descendere nec morari', provided for the construction of a bridge with three arches and two piers at which just as many panoramic terraces protruded.



The work was inaugurated on 4 November 1929 and was completed in 1931: the installation of four bronze groups symbolising Victory dates back to this date. On 25 and 26 April, the retreating German troops undermined all the bridges in Verona.  At the end of the Second World War, Fagiuoli reworked the bridge by removing the panoramic terraces.
